Lately, I have been loving minimalism and keeping it simple when it comes to outfits. A few accessories here and there and some comfy dresses is where its at! I found this simple black dress at Buffalo Exchange along with the Vincero watch. I've had such great luck finding discounted clothing and accessories from places like Buffalo and Poshmark that I don't think I could ever pay full price again! Don't quote me on that though...

These photos were taken by my lovely and talented friend, Samantha Taylor and you can check out her work here! I've linked the items for your shopping pleasure at the end of the post <3

Striped Summer Dress

by Michelle Lella


I've come to realize less is more lately and have really been enjoying more minimalistic looks. This striped dress has been sitting in my closet for since last summer and I decided to bring it back into rotation. It's so comfortable and perfect for the AZ heat. I purchased it a while back from Nordstrom but linked a similar one from Madewell that just happens to be on sale!

Hope you all are having a great week so far and for my AZ peeps, try to stay cool!

A Thrifty Find

by Michelle Lella


When I saw spotted this dress at Buffalo Exchange I knew I had to snag it. It has a vintage feel to it, but since the tag was cut out of it I have no idea where or when it is from. Some of the best things are mysteries, I guess. I added my new favorite scarf from Madewell and it was a match made in heaven. 

I was so excited to share these photos that were taken by the lovely, Kaitlin. She is such a pleasure to shoot with and I always love how her work turns out. You can check out some of her other gorgeous photos here.

I recently collaborated with Danielle from Images by Danielle and I'm in love with the results. Not only did I receive my photos only a day and a half after the shoot but I adored how they came out! She is available for weddings, family photos and blogger collaborations. Check out her work here.

I was obsessed with midi skirts last summer and nothing has changed here. One of my favorite outfits is a slimming bodysuit with a fun, printed midi skirt. This skirt was purchased a while back from Forever21 (definitely sold out now) but I've attached some other midi skirts I love that you can shop below!

I love collaborating with talented friends! It turns a photoshoot into a whole day of fun. Kaitlin and I first met at Macalpine's Diner and Soda Fountain for a quick ice cream pick-me-up and then explored downtown Phoenix in perfect AZ weather. Shooting with Kaitlin was so fun and I can't wait to do it again! Check out some of her other amazing work here :)

Spring is in the air and I can't help but want to wear florals every day. I scored this mustard yellow dress from a thrift store and knew that I couldn't live without it. I paired it with rose gold accessories and my new crossbody from 88 Handbags. Like I said, the dress was a thrifty miracle but I've attached where to get the accessories below.

Photos were taken by the lovely Courtney Wilson.
